 FROM CLASSROOMS TO THE SPORTS FIELDS
 
 
Cricket in India is more than just a sport! Even before they learn how to read and write they know which cricketer they would like to be when they grow up. But unfortunately, most kids even though love the sport don't get an opportunity to play it. In order to give the kids a break from their regular classes, on 22nd November '14, our sponsors and volunteers, played Cricket with about 30 kids from our Tuglakabad Centre. Though they all played cricket in the park opposite their centre, the joy in their eyes was visibly evident, and felt like they were playing in a stadium! It was a heartwarming feeling to see the kids forget about all their worries and problems and get totally involved in the game. We would specially like to thank our volunteers and sponsors who volunteered their precious time to play cricket with our kids. While the kids had a lot of fun, so did our sponsors. Their experience was beautifully quoted by one of the sponsors who played there. He said "I have been playing cricket since I was a child, played with my friends, school team, interschool, etc. but never ever have I felt like such an achiever the way I feel today! These kids have arisen my hidden child"
Post the game all our kids and sponsors together sat and had Samosas and a Fruity each!

 Servesamman's trip to Ujhani
 
 
Our NGO expanded its arms and reached to the people in interiors of UP. We organised a training programm for 50 teachers which included training in various life skills. The training covered aspects of a good schooling beyond academics so as to make teachers and indirectly through them the hundreds of children capable to face the world. The training took place in small village of Ujhani in Uttar Pradesh. Three of our team members went there and helped teachers to learn important life skills like human development, child development and emotional quotient. We hope our little effort in training teachers in these skills will help teachers to become more capable in handling students and will also give a holistic aspect to their development. Starting at the ground level, teaching 50 teachers we aim to sweep down another 1500 children. We hope our small attempt will add up to make a small difference in making a better future.
